This week’s HSJ supplement, in association with Bupa, examines why out of hospital care makes sense for patients and the NHS

The first chapter looks at why care out of hospital needs to be made more robust if the problems of bed blocking and delayed discharge are to be prevented from getting much worse. We also look at Bupa’s risk stratification tool that can help to identify those most likely to be admitted.

In the second chapter, we show how moving patient care out of the clinical setting and into the community can improve patient experience and reap financial rewards for healthcare organisations.
